is supposed to be a business expert. it says nothing about the future of this country under president obama's second administration. and something else about michael bloomberg. staten island is in ruins. one-third of manhattan is without power for five days. he will have the new york city marathon start in staten island and run throughout the five boroughs through the midst of devastation. it is more than that, it is elitism. i appreciate your callers that call and with their religious and other beliefs. i am a political science guy. i have to tell you, michael bloomberg is an opportunist. you violated the new york city charter by running for a third term as mayor. we are in a very dire state here and i wish republicans run the country would offer us new york republicans help and an opportunity to really balance out the political system here. host: thank you for the call this morning. if a time for a few more calls. all weekend long we will be featuring the history and literary life of vermont capital city with a population of just about 8000 people. the smallest united states state capitol
, the best surrogate on this planet is bill clinton. former president has been all over the country for obama. he's lost his voice he's working so hard. here he was in florida today. let's take a look. five stops down there. >> what president obama is saying, look at me, i'm always willing to work with republicans, i work with governor christie in new jersey on sandy. i tried to work with him on the budget. i tried to work with him on health care. and what they say is we'll work with the democrats if you put us in charge. now, that's the message, and -- you just have to decide whether you think that's a good message. >> there's bill out there. getting ought the attention but it's great. >> he's very popular in florida. i'll tell what you else, bloomberg, he might as well also be the mayor of broward county. there are so many new yorkers who are dual residents. >> they still read the new york post because they think it's liberal. >> they still read "the new york post." florida has 22% independents, people who listen to bloomberg and clinton and that fema thing i think is also going to hurt rom
partisan, blaming, attacking, dividing. >> the most partisan president? someone who is dividing the country? what a joke. how about this picture? president obama coming together with a republican governor to tackle the damage from hurricane sandy. need another image, here's another. he's our country leader comforting a jersey resident hit by the storm. need proof of this president being a uniting figure? here's the tape. >> the president has been all over this. the president has been outstanding. i appreciate that type of leadership. >> but it wasn't just that kind of leadership that sets president obama apart in this natural disaster. he exposes how wrong the romney ticket is about the role of government. we're better together, not apart, not alone. and today, yet another romney argument disintegrating. he argued today's jobs report is, quote, a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual standstill. a standstill? we've had 32 straight months of private sector job growth. that's nearly 5 1/2 million jobs. president obama took us back from the brink of an economic catastrophe. that's lead
in the country. there was one component that bothers the obama campaign in the most dire state when the president was leading by so many points. independence is trending toward romney, and that is why he's going to pennsylvania to try to get independent votes even though pennsylvania democrats outnumber republicans registered voters by over a million people. he feels the election should be, can be won with independence, and that component is going to romney. >> mark, if we drew lines on that today on the trail map, you would actually see barack obama and mitt romney crisscrossing each other throughout the midwest today. you tend to think it that where they go is where their attentions are at this point. so, how in play are wisconsin and ohio right now as far as swinging this one? >> well, wisconsin, the president won by 14 points where's trying to hold on and to get the one-vote victory to get all of the electoral votes. he did very well in northwestern wisconsin, a white rural area. he flipped 12 of 19 counties, which wasup pret precedented. in ohio -- unprecedented and in ohio, he won by five
in the country in 2004. he had a big blowout for president for barack obama in 2008. democrats tended to dominate the u.s. senate election. we had a big republican tidal wave in 2010. if they win the senate seat this november, it will be the first time since the 1950's we have had thought to republican senators. the state swings back and forth between the two parties. host: as far as the math is concerned, what areas of the state trench republican and what areas trent democrat -- what areas of the state trend republican and what areas trends democrat? guest: the areas for the democrats are routed milwaukee and madison. the classic areas for republicans are in southeastern wisconsin around milwaukee county and heading up along the eastern coast of wisconsin. a lot of wisconsin really does swing. there are counties in northeastern wisconsin around green bay and western wisconsin that swung huge for obama in 2008 and swung back in 2010 and the recall fight in 2012. there were counties that brothel, won signed 10 points and scott -- that barack obama won by 10 points and governor scott won. those wil
republicans. why would you make that mistake again. watch. >> obama: in the closing weeks of this campaign, governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly the very same policies we've been cleaning up after for the past four years and he is offering them up as change! giving more power back to the biggest banks isn't change. leaving millions without health insurance isn't change! another $5 trillion tax cult that favors the wealthy isn't change. >> cenk: president obama's campaign team, you're welcome. all right now we're going to bring in michael shure our political correspondent. i understand that we in the midst of all this campaigning do not have campaigning in some places. what are they and why? >> there are reasons he is not in certain places. he is going to be in ohio, wisconsin, iowa, colorado, one stop scheduled in new hampshire one in virginia. he does not have any stops in north carolina, nor in michigan. he doesn't have a stop in minnesota or pennsylvania. the threeness, you look at that map the
.1% to 7.8%. that's lowest figure in nearly three years what it was when president obama took office. both sides spun the data. >> aid rehypedder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> we can do better. we don't have to stay on path we have been on. >> reporter: expect it to become a talking point on the trail that will be winding through the main battleground states in the days ahead. romney and the president are visiting 7 states today through sunday romney's campaign says the traditionally democratic state of pennsylvania is in play and announced the candidate will stop there sunday. the obama campaign is calling that an act of desperation. team romney said they are on the offensive and look at an extended map. most everything between now and election day will have heated back and forth exchanges including the jobs report that's coming out today n washington -- from washington, now back to you. >>> president obama received a surprise endorsement days before election. yesterday michael blockberg announced support for the incumbent. he said this week's extreme weather led
is the coming back, but he knows how torn the country is. >> it is difficult to be excited about obama if you have not worked. i love obama. i understand the appeal of romney in this situation. >> reporter: like voters everywhere, he is tired of the campaign. >> obama has been here more than celine dion has. >> reporter: but hopeful that americans win. >> this is not a republican or democratic thing, it is a american thing. >> oh, a lot of americans can relate to what louie anderson is saying. miguel marquez joins us from las vegas. i was in las vegas not long ago and i know how hard it was hit by the recession, but sounds like things are coming back, but the question is how strong is the recovery right now? >> yeah. this town is starting to glitter again, but not as glittery as it was. so maybe the most important statistic over the last few days comes from the county of clark county which has 12.3 unemployment at the moment. housing prices for the first time since 2007 have inched up 1%. businesses are starting to hire again here at the stratosphere where they brought in more than 100 people
when it came to voting for obama. i think they'll turn out again because we have concerns about this country. we are optimistic about the direction, in the sense we know it has to get better from here. i think they'll turn out for obama. when he came into office, employment was at 10:00, now at 7.8%. young people are interested in issues concerning people of color, lgbt community, health care. young people now can stay on their parents plans till 26, he's stood up for -- >> what about what katie mentioned, what we hear is young people are getting out of college in many cases and can't find a job. do you think that, or don't you think the economic issue will override the other concerns or do you think it won't? >> it's not certainly like pres pass job bills in congress. certainly it's been very hard when you have a congress predominantly republican that has been pushing back on the jobs bills he's tried to pass. only so much he can do in that regard. but he has done quite a bit to forward the economy regarding the stimulus and making sure that students have lower financial aid on
obama in tent 08 and thought he was going to be a unifier that brought our country together, are very disappointed that our country is as divided as it's ever been. something i said today in peb pen, which i think is true. i am a republican. i love the republican party. i love america more. i think our folks will tell you, as well today, they want a leader who will bring america together and help save america and brick america and its economy back to where it is expected to be. >> greta: are i saying you think it would be a bad thing if president obama were re-elected? >> i think it sets us back that his ideas are wrong for the future. they are not the right ideas to get us moving forward. if he word processor to be re-elected -- and it's not going to happen -- we are not going to have the economic groakt that we need or expect. i don't think we will get a plan to save medicare. i don't think we will have a pro-american energy policy. it is not just the things -- bad things that might happen, it's the good things that won't happen. it's the busy things that will have to wait. i don't
pie obama. everybody knows i have a prejudice and a beans bias against obama. i hope he loses -- i want him to lose big. i want this country to reject everybody he stands for. that's what my dream is. >> greta: to someone who has a good idea of how the candidates are feeling right now, senator john mccain. good evening. i am curious at this late date, is there much either candidate can do to woo votes? >> well, i think this libya fiaso and tragedy is turning some veterans' votes and some active-duty military. i am hearing from veterans all over america. they are angered and disgusted. our active-duty military people believe they can't trust the president of the united states. i am hearing from them everywhere. and so, it may have an impact, for example in the state of florida, 1.6 million veterans and their families and they can have an impact. they can in ohio as well. the latest scandals, as you know, the latest -- one of the latest is that -- there was a gathering in the consulate in benghazi of the security people. they reviewed the fact that al qaeda was in the area in big tim
, tackling the long-term debt crisis in this country. you do it with a balance of higher taxes on wealthier households, which is what president obama wants, or do you do it almost basically entirely by cutting spending, which is what mitt romney wants? number one. number two, health care. should there be a larger expanded government role to insure that everyone has health care or not? do you have much more private sector oriented solution, which would allow some people not to have health care, which is what mitt romney wants when he wants to repeal obama care? both pieces really get at that very basic choice. i think those are the two central things here. how are we going to pay for a reduction in our debt in terms of our tax code, and number two, our health care system, which is both a matter of insuring people and also it's also a debt question. >> michael, is there any way to measure who picks up which copy in terms of who supports -- who gets more support this go-round? >> you know, i don't know the answer to that question. it's a great one, but, look, you know, we're proud because, you
of the few people in hollywood, willing to speak out against president obama. and this summer, movie icon, clint eastwood made headlines with his harsh critique of the administration. earlier, i had a chance to talk with him about the upcoming election and the state of the country. like his speech at the rnc, he was not mincing words about president obama. joining us now, hollywood star himself, the one and only -- i guess star of the republican national committee, as well, that's clint eastwood. welcome to the program. great to finally meet you. >> good to be with you. good to be with you, sean. >> sean: i appreciate it. you said you wanted to make three points at the republican national convention. you wanted to point out not everyone is left in hollywood. you made that point. you talked about -- you know, obama made a lot of broken promises. and then the biggest point, if somebody doesn't do a good job, it's okay to let 'em go. tell us how you got involved in this? >> well they asked me fiwanted to come back there and be involved in the convention. i didn't know exactly how to be invol
. >> reporter: launching a frantic five-day battleground tour, mr. obama hammered his opponent as a candidate who can't be trusted. >> governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up all these same policies that failed our country so badly. >> reporter: charging into virginia, mitt romney, who Ñi softened his attack during the wake of superstorm sandy, had more to say. he re-focused squarely on his rival >> if president obama is reelected, you will see high levels of unemployment continue and stalled wage growth, if any at all. >> reporter: and mr. romney mocked mr. obama for this proposal he outlined earlier. >> i said i want to consolidate the government agencies, we should have one secretary of business, instead of nine different departments. >> we don't need the secretary of business to understand business. we need a president who understands business. and i do. >> reporter: this afternoon in richmond, mr. romney called on supporters to give to the red cross but was interrupted by protesters. >> that is what caused this monster storm. >> reporter: at the center o
with the democrats and create the type of bipartisan agreements that move the country forward. he is making the argument that it's time for big change. borrowed rhetoric from the 2008 obama campaign that he says the president hasn't stuck to. he will wrap up the third event in virginia beach, virginia today. fully ten more battleground states that he plans to visit between now and tuesday night. he will wrap it up with a big speech in new hampshire, where he has a vacation home. that is his manchester, new hampshire, monday night event. the final campaign stop before the polls open on tuesday. romney is in a dead even tie across the country in the national poll. in the battleground state polls though president obama stayed within the margin of error, he is at the high end of it. some congress certain in romney campaign that ohio will be a big struggle. they have to make the ground game work. and the last 72-hour push. to that end, a pew research poll, very, have interesting that says nationally the obama campaign touched 14% of the electorate -- excuse me. 11% of the electorate with either

(laughter) not everybody got the memo. >> over the last couple months, you have appeared throughout the country on behalf of mitt romney, we hear that perhaps he's going to -- mr. romney may do some storm-related events. is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour the damage with you? (laughter) >> jon: are you kidding me, doocy?

(cheers and applause). >> jon: if i know my state and my governor, i believe that is the point of the conversation where you are supposed to flip over a table and yell "pro * "prostitution whore!" (laughter) you know, on a personal note i live in downtown manhattan -- (laughter). -- and
. what president obama barack obama and the others brought with them was their government. you better believe that means the kind of big government that everyone has talked about like it was an assault on our country it's freedoms and future. this was the government the one that every one talked so tough about until they need it. >> it under lines something that we have been saying under the campaign. there is a fake debate about the size and roll of the government. it is who is it going to help and who is going to have a say in that government. how will be things be distributed in the hard of the argument? the question is it going to be there for folks that are poor and on medicaid. it is about who would benefit? >> the thing that has happened that has been painful is that fema seems to be working better than it did under george bush and obama has cut the red tape. that is not something that republicans thought was possible at the federal level. >> and how big a government does a big country need? how big a government does staten island need when it is under water tonight? it needs a
: although mr. obama supports a pathway to citizenship for young people brought to this country by undocumented parents, he did not get a bill through congress. instead, last june, he issued an executive order to delay deportation for those who qualify for up to two years. 24-year-old ana araica is applying for that deferment right now. she came to this country from nicaragua nine years ago and has three young children. >> i want to become legal for my kids. because i want to be able to provide for them. i want to work. >> reporter: araica is getting help with her application from sandra sanchez with the iowa american friends service network. sanchez says programs that encourage young immigrants to become legal citizens should be welcomed by iowans. >> we are a state that is aging, and that is aging very rapidly. our baby boomers are retiring. and we're not having young people stay here, other than immigrants. we need to understand that immigration in iowa is actually an asset. and we could tap into that asset and manage it in such a way that we can grow. >> reporter: with polls
